19 Sep Superbunny Sings Powerful Message – America at its Greatest Builds a Bridge and Not a Wall
The Adventures of Superbunny (Episode 5) making its premiere at NY Theater Festival’s SummerFest in October will feature the song “America at its Greatest,” a tune about togetherness and inclusion which gives voice to the message that this country is strongest when Americans build bridges of understanding, not walls. The theme is further conveyed through the use of sign language during the song’s chorus. This multi-disciplinary approach to music builds those bridges so children can learn a new tool for communicating with each other to problem solve and to have fun. At its core, the Superbunny series is about teamwork, believing in one’s self, and overcoming challenges.
The Adventures of Superbunny (Episode 5) stars a house rabbit from Queens, who possesses mysterious super powers and his best pal Veronica, a street wise bunny who works as a therapy pet at the New York Public Library. Together the two must use their brains and their brawn to stop a villain who has stolen all of the library books in the City and is bent on destroying technology. Entrada Publishing called this tale “A sweet story of mystery and adventure that teaches kids of the importance of books in our society, as well as that it’s ok to be different.”
The Adventures of Superbunny (Episode 5) has book and lyrics by Michael MacKenzie Wills (writer/director of the MAC Award-winning Operation Opera and the Cow Named Cow musicals), music by C. Colby Sachs (composer of the MITF award-winning The Princess, The Cow, and The Corn Maze), and choreography by J. Joseph Burke (A Superbunny Christmas). Starring Erik Jonathan Shuler (in his fifth show with Rabbit Hole Theatricks) as Thumperino Superbunny, Matt Haas (Midtown International Theatre Festival’s Best Actor) as Felonious Farghoven, Meghan Bailey (original cast album of Bystander) in her Rabbit Hole Theatricks debut as Veronica. Based on the children’s book Thumperino Superbunny and the Laser of Doom by Amber L. Spradlin, winner of the 2019 Purple Dragon Fly Award and the National Indie Excellence Award.
